ASTROLOGY NEWSLETTER APRIL 15- MAY 1, 2023
We find ourselves surrounded by sub-personalities. A subpersonality is a piece of your identity hidden within, from a long time ago. It’s there to navigate through society especially when things get dicey. With everything everywhere all at once now, it’s a perfect time for subpersonalities to appear.
If you feel like little pieces of your personality are breaking out to help you function, don’t overplay your hand. Don’t show everything you’ve got right away.
There’s the Comedian, the Smart One, the Hero, the Trustworthy One, the Mascot, the Dealmaker, the Insatiable Wild Animal, the Offended one, the Charmer and on and on. They act in a daze of functionality, passing as whole. The truth is they are interior parts that once saved the day by coping or shouting or being mute and insist their routine works. Allow them to have their say but you make the ultimate decision of when to call, raise or fold.
Trumpy has a circus of them under his coat. Many famous people become known for one or two subpersonalities. We all summon them to cope with life. And suffer when they take over blindly.
This period brings that dreaded Invaders From Mars moment when that Other part of you takes over to survive.
All the old routines come back like undigested food when the deals and agreements you thought were resolved return. Let what doesn’t work go.
The Solar Eclipse New Moon is on Wednesday April 19 at 9:12 PM PST with the Eclipse at 29 degrees of Aries. A planet at the 29th degree brings the end of something.
This cycle is a time to go all the way through that looking glass to the other side and don’t look back. Let what’s going go.
The Eclipse square to Pluto could bring a deep disappointment with government, leaders or a partner …who’s not in their right mind. The feeling of being misled or betrayed instigates a revolution somewhere on the planet.
It’s possible that an earth event or the madman in Russia may act out. Some kind of episode on a mass scale is possible with weather, weapons or the earth.
It’s no secret that government is both absent and too present. This period could bring a kind of abandonment if the chips go down.
Mars rules Aries. Fighting, war and fire. With Mars in Cancer the fire is in water.
Like those poor dogs of Chernobyl, the innocents in nature pay the price of human brutality.
OR ON THE OTHER HAND
When you let go of the need to control something or someone you’ll be spared. You can have a renewal and new beginning.
Mercury goes retrograde on April 21. Any mistakes need correction by mid May. Things that don’t work mysteriously start working again. Things that you were sure of go to quicksand.
Money and the markets take a ride to hell in a handbasket. Take stock of what you own. The next three years are en route. This period is stressful with money, cash and ownership.
You can get through this Eclipse when you:
Let go of what is leaving
Control yourself when fate touches your life
Relax the rigidity
Hold those close that matter to you
Have a plan if services don’t work
Stock up on supplies
Make sure your animals are safe
Keep track of children and elders
Be the calm center in the family
Lead others in meditation
Be prepared for something, somewhere to happen all at once
The positive side of this difficult Eclipse:
Brings out the best in you
Allows loved ones to get closer
Frees up the need to control
Makes you aware of every moment
Sees the humanity in life
Lets go of the need to do it your way
Respects the earth and its power to support or destroy life
Looks past the pettiness to see a bigger picture
Confront where you’re self -absorbed
Puts illusion in its place
The next few weeks and the months afterward change life in a dramatic or political way.
Be on the right side of Fate and do what you need to do to keep all your plates spinning. Love the ones you’re with.
Meditate to see through to the Light.
INDIVIDUAL SUN AND RISING SIGNS
ARIES is the “it” guy or gal. Mars makes you clean up all the clutter. Don’t throw away the bathwater and the baby when you realize that change has been coming for the last 6 months. What you clutch at gets shaken up. Around the end of the month something you’re counting on goes sideways, and gets resuscitated when you allow an adjustment. Mercury retrograde April 21 brings a financial review.
The Eclipse brings all the things in your closet out for a last look. Where you fight yourself goes to war when the home or family is not on board. Be simple and paired down at work, at home, in love. Don’t control friends or be controlled by their opinion. Pluto wipes you out when you hold tighter to the person that needs to change. Give them space. A job holds out a secret development.
TAURUS has Mercury retrograde on the 21st. Your travel plans go up in the air when an unscheduled event happens. Frustration gives way to cooperation. Your energy gets spikey with siblings and at school events. Money needs wrangling if too much is bought haphazardly.
The Eclipse outs a secret suddenly. It’s time to not control an apology. Put things back together where there’s understanding. The hospital, clinic or retreat is a place of surprise. Be the center in the family if someone needs help. Healing comes in mysterious ways. Be open to mistaking a left turn then going in the right direction.
GEMINI has a rough road to walk this month. Mercury retrograde with Uranus speeds up nervousness in mind and with communication. Patience is a virtue. Allow others to take their time. Hold that sharp tongue. Be thoughtful with contracts and don’t feel pressured to make others happy.
The Eclipse disappears an old way of life. Money and cash come on the heels of letting go of control. You’re rewarded for all the times you chose love. Let the Gemini mind resist the need to win mentally. You’re already on the brink of where you want to be. Enjoy the uphill trek.
CANCER has Mercury retrograde in the house of friendship. Pieces of a relationship are examined in order to be better understood. You resolve a confrontation by telling the truth to yourself. Where you’ve embellished needs correction and adjustment. It’s that huffing and puffing sub personality that got out of control. Dial it down.
The Eclipse brings a career/world opportunity that you cannot control. Power and ego step up and do better. Be truthful with yourself about the reality of the triggering situation. There’s potential for a new deal if you can admit to being mistaken and go on. The overhang of family themes is relentless. Deal with pride and not wanting to make a mistake and then reset. Peace in the heart goes far.
LEO is on the precipice of success. A trip or foreign interest arrives and you do the dance. Mercury retrograde brings back an old deal with a new face. The offer is different this time and takes you by surprise. If something devastating happened recently you are recovering.
The Eclipse brings out a hidden asset that you’ve forgotten. Secret issues are acted out by partners who want to raise the emotional ante. Be a good player and hold your hand. The time comes to play the cards in about a month. Until then, sit tight and don’t jump on the bandwagon. Be cool, Leo and you’ll get the crown you’re after.
VIRGO has Mercury retrograde in your debt and mutual money house. You go back over offers from a potential partner that you forgot. Take time to reposition your assets in an innovative way so they can be sold or acquired by another. Be calm and don’t force a sale or acquisition until after mid -May. Your buyer is standing by in the wings. They’re an angel sent from another realm and they might look weird on this plane.
The Eclipse makes for pressure with debt and collection. Use your accuracy to figure out what is motivating your client. Start a campaign that brings back the beginning and build a future based on how and where you started. Virgo’s luck changes the middle of April. What went down comes back and is on top. Hold onto trusting yourself.
LIBRA is reviewing power issues you want to do over. The wrong turn taken involves a mistake you could’ve side- stepped. Be a good partner now and move toward generosity even if someone else is being greedy. Know what is going on when a surprise replays and rebalances the situation. Mercury retrograde on April 21 brings a bill that you didn’t expect. It gets worked out through mid-May.
The Eclipse puts you in a receptive role with a partner. Let go of controlling them or the outcome. Be open to what is offered. It’s up to you to choose. The Other is secretly positioning you and you know it. Be peaceable and don’t fight. You can keep an ally even if it ‘s not perfect. Keep on moving towards your goal. You’re better off than you think.
SCORPIO has Mercury retrograde after April 21 in your house of
partnership. A disagreement or change in plans continues through mid- May. Be ready for adjustments with money, travel and valuables. Your patience will be challenged when a deadline needs to be extended due to someone’s confusion.
The Eclipse on April 19-20 brings all that old baggage back from the past. Someone you depend on makes a decision that affects home or family. Let go of control gamesmanship and things work out. A child or creative project goes through something last minute that disrupts the plan. By Mid- May you’re looking at a whole new set of options and are back on track.
SAGITTARIUS is having luck on your side. The future, a foreigner or travel is offering more and you can take the offer. Don’t get sidetracked by the past and gossip. Stay on your creative path after Mercury goes retrograde April 21st. The hidden details of the deal start to get outed now thorough May. Things work out in your favor.
The Eclipse on April 19-20 brings a child or creative project center stage. You need to choose between what has been to what can be. The future holds so many options. Do you really want to be held down and controlled by what’s passed? You’re emotionally listening to another person who has a stake in you doing what they want. Be free enough to be independent and act on your autonomy.
CAPRICORN has just gotten free of the wear and tear of Pluto and now contends with the god of wealth in the money house. Some client or partner plays with you and it’s a power play. Mercury retrograde on April 21 sets the stage for a decision that involves children or how you take care of your inner child. Be diplomatic and take care of yourself for a change.
The Eclipse on April 19-20 sets up a high- pressure scene with home and family. A partner or a client tries to change your decision and you must act directly before it’s too late. They want a showdown but you can finesse the problem and walk away with your head held high. The Other is up against a wall and does not want consequences. Speak the truth directly. They see the truth.
AQUARIUS has the backstory of Saturn. Tired and weary of all the work, your image in the world is intact yet you need to decide what you want to keep doing. Mercury retrograde makes family and home decisions have more finality. Be kind with the people that are lost and need help.
The Eclipse brings clarity to the decisions you need to make. Assist those that look to you to be strong. You realize that your role is to transform what’s impossible into something that can be done. Move into your new role in life and utilize the resources you’ve worked so hard to have. Friends come but they don’t know your side of things. Be silent and move with confidence from the strength within that you’ve nourished.
PISCES has Saturn in your sign. If you’ve been strengthening yourself with humility this time pays off. If you want to power through the difficult parts and win, you get blocked. A father or father figure is weakened and needs attention. Time goes very slowly and energy seems heavy. Use this period to work with strengthening any weakness. Mercury retrograde disrupts plans around short -term travel.
The Eclipse begins a money deal that might end up differently from what was expected. Someone off to the side tries to control the terms or you control too much. There is hidden discord when you ignore your intuition. Get with your inner voice and trust the past that cautions you to go slow. Do things from the new foundation you’ve been building. There can be more peace when you connect to the Source.
